Regulatory Status Legend
STATs (signal transducers and activators of transcription) are critical mediators of the biologic activity of cytokines including Interleukins (IL) 2-5, IL-7, IL-15, GM-CSF, erythropoietin and growth hormone. Ligand-receptor interaction leads to activation of constitutively associated JAK family kinases and subsequent recruitment/activation of STATs by tyrosine phosphorylation. Active STATs then move to the nucleus to promote transcription of cytokine-inducible genes. Seven STAT proteins have been cloned, each of which is differentially expressed and/or activated in a cytokine-specific and cell type-specific manner. Stat6 plays an important role in signaling pathways that lead to the differentiation of T helper type 2 (Th2) cells from uncommitted CD4 T cell precursors. Moreover, IL-4, secreted by activated T lymphocytes, basophils, and mast cells, induces specific gene expression via the induction of tyrosine phosphorylation of Stat6 at tyrosine 641 (Y641). The SH3:SH2 domain of Stat6 associates with tyrosine-phosphorylated IL-4 receptor and the proximal Jak kinase phosphorylates Stat6 at Y641 on the C-terminal side of the SH2 domain. Stat6 is then released from the receptor, dimerizes, and is thought to contact the basal transcription machinery by binding to p300/CBP. While Stat6 is widely expressed in human tissues, it exhibits elevated expression in peripheral blood lymphocytes, colon, intestine, ovary, prostate, thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, lung, and placenta.
The 23/Stat6 monoclonal antibody recognizes Stat6, regardless of phosphorylation status.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
